Biased or Researched
Today I’m covering one of the many sounds that can cost you your ideal prospects, sales, and return customers. And that’s the lilt.
Lilt is one of the ways we affect our voices–it’s where your voice lifts up at the end, making everything sound like a question even when it’s not.
The problem with lilt is it can consciously and unconsciously be interpreted by your listener as asking for permission; that you aren’t the expert you say you are. It creates the feeling that you don’t know what you are talking about.
Having a lilt is not bad–it can be a powerful choice in certain situations. Part of what I do with my students is uncover what sounds truly belong to them and what don’t.
More often than not I find that the lilt is based out of a cultural habit or motivated from pleasing people. None of that is bad, it’s important to know whether your subconscious is tricking you into using the lilt to protect your heart and hamper your truest expression.
Voice is like...
Today, I’ve got a question for you. Voice is like…? I recently heard my friend and former student Rita of Unbox Your Gift Podcast interview a politician. In that episode Rita asked this woman a question about politics but the question was so profound and so relatable to voice that I had to do an episode on that very question.
Voice is Critical in a Recession
Some say we are in an economic downturn. I say, you need your voice more than ever if that’s the case. In a moment in time when it seems like working on one’s voice would be a luxury, it’s actually one of the most critical things you can work on.
Bad Advice Part 1
Welcome to the show!
I actually don’t want you to think of what I’m teaching today as bad advice, I want you to see that some advice is working against you.
Today, I’m talking about the concept of just go live, just show up no matter how bad you are.
First, there is no bad. Second, you could immediately repel your ideal client and it might take them awhile to come find you again.
I do believe that just showing up is not the answer. Yes, I want you to show up and well before you are ready but it’s critical to take into consideration sounds that really could hurt the initial experience your ideal client has when they first hear your voice.
You may be shocked by this concept but after you listen to the episode, I think it will all make sense.

Creating a Massive Referral Business
When it comes to creating a referral business and a great experience, we have to look at authenticity to what degrees of it we use in relation to what we want our ideal client to experience.
Today I want to talk about why we do what we do when it comes to how we use our voice and the communication choices we make.
This is the final installment in the current lessons I’m learning from training my dog and this episode is the one I’ve been telling you about.
